What a beautiful room we had in this historic home and the breakfast was very well done in a gorgeous dining room. The town seems to shut down early in the evening. Make dinner plans before everything closes up, or you may find yourself dining on pizza on the waterfront, but even that was still lovely. It was well worth... More

We spent 3 nights at the Cooper's Inn in July 2015. Pat and David awaited us with a warm welcome. There was also a handwritten welcome. Our room was just beautiful. We really did enjoy those Happy Hour evenings in the garden. A nice way to mingle with the other guests. The breakfast was outstanding. I'm really glad David convinced... More

Couldn't asked for anymore, our room was just beautiful, comfortable, roomy and quiet, oh so quiet. We walked over for supper and watched the sailboats in the bay. The sunset was incredible, and so was our host. She did everything to make sure our stay was exactly what we wanted. The breakfast was just lovely, granola, coffee, pancakes and French... More

Fully lived up to its online reputation. On historic dock street in Shelburne, it was only five minutes from three museums and fine dining. Host were interactive and late afternoon complementary wine in the enclosed garden was an unanticipated touch. Beautiful views of sailboats anchored in the harbour from our spacious second level room. More than met expectations on all... More

What a lovely B&B this is. Such an awesome couple, Pat and David, that run this with attention to detail to say the least. From the welcome note in our room, to the glass of wine shared with them both and other guests to the fantastic breakfast the next morning. This was a very relaxing way for us to celebrate... More

As soon as we turned onto Dock Street in Shelburne, we felt like we had stepped back in time. We wish we had been able to spend more time exploring this town and environs which is just a bit off the beaten path. Many Loyalists came here during the American Revolution in the 1780s, but the population of the town... More

Shelburne is indeed rich in Loyalist History. Escaping the ordinary is the reality. And staying at the Coopers Inn an experience you can enjoy. Thank you for your thoughtful observations. More

Cooper's Inn is managed by Laurie. She was so friendly and helpful. We sat and had a glass of wine together. I learned so much about her town, family and where to eat. We liked our room and location. Definitely worth a stay here.

Thank you for your kind comments regarding Lori. Her big heart and love of home and community are exactly what she's all about. We're fortunate to have her on our team. We'd like to believe that a visit to Nova Scotia isn't complete without a stay at The Coopers Inn and historic Shelburne. More

I don't do the B&B thing and was a bit aprehensive about booking Cooper's Inn - but was swayed by the comments on Trip Advisor. This place needs its own category. The rooms and amenities are top line hotel quality; down to the ensuites, kurigs, morning paper, and flatscreens, but they also have the personal touches. Usually you pay for... More

It was the first place we've stayed at where guests were invited to share the garden with a glass of wine and snacks. Our hostess joined us as well. Beautiful place! Great service. Perfect location and a good breakfast nicely presented.

You make us blush. Complements are most appreciated. We are fortunate to truly enjoy what we do and to be able to meet wonderful guests like you in our home. As proud Nova Scotians we take delight in offering many local food items on our breakfast menu. The gluten free options taste good too. More
